You know my name

So you found a new song playing on the airwaves, you liked it, browse the internet for the mp3, upload to your phones, set up as your ringtone. A few days later, or maybe soon enough, your best friend (coincidentally) have the same ringtone. Despair? Frustrated? Hahaha, chill, it happens to me also.

When it comes to this situation, I always go back to browse my old playlist and I assure you that there will be that song you fall in love again. For example for this week’s Music Monday, I present You Know My Name, the theme song to the 2006 James Bond film, Casino Royale.

This song was performed by Chris Cornell of Audioslave. The song was actually made to act as a substitute for the usual James Bond theme, to represent Bond’s immaturity. In the movie, James Bond is a newbie agent that kick, shoot, punches away whoever that got in his way.

It was back in 2006, the college days, after attending our faculty dinner night, me and my friends decided to see that movie. That is when I heard the song for the first time, and I was totally blown away. So this is my current ringtone, my current musical motivator, my favourite. Enjoy the song and hope you can enjoy the day without Monday blues.

Chris Cornell – You Know My Name

If you take a life do you know what you’ll give?
Odds are, you won’t like what it is
When the storm arrives, would you be seen with me?
By the merciless eyes of deceit?

I’ve seen angels fall from blinding heights
But you yourself are nothing so divine
Just next in line

Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you
The odds will betray you
And I will replace you
You can’t deny the prize it may never fulfill you
It longs to kill you
Are you willing to die?

The coldest blood runs through my veins
You know my name

If you come inside things will not be the same
When you return to the night
And if you think you’ve won
You never saw me change
The game that we all been playing

I’ve seen diamonds cut through harder men
Than you yourself
But if you must pretend
You may meet your end

Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you
The odds will betray you
And I will replace you
You can’t deny the prize it may never fulfill you
It longs to kill you
Are you willing to die?

The coldest blood runs through my veins

Try to hide your hand
Forget how to feel
Forget how to feel

Life is gone with just a spin of the wheel
Spin of the wheel

Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you
The odds will betray you
And I will replace you
You can’t deny the prize it may never fulfill you
It longs to kill you
Are you willing to die?

The coldest blood runs through my veins
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name
You know my name
